President Buhari has approved tenure extension for the Controller-General of the Nigeria Prisons Service, Ahmed Ja’afaru, by one year with effect from July 21, 2019. 

The Ministry of Interior spokesman, Mohammed Manga, in a statement in Abuja on Friday, said Ja’afaru, whose tenure was to end on July 21, was recommended for the extension due to “his track record of innovative reforms in the Prisons Service.” 

He further explained that the extension was also informed by the need to consolidate and complete some of the ongoing programmes especially on human rights compliance, reformation and health care, agricultural and education programmes for the inmates.

While congratulating the CG, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Georgina Ehuriah, urged him to consolidate on the ongoing reforms in the Prisons Service in line with the policy thrust of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari “which is geared towards ushering the next-level of socio-economic development of Nigeria.”
